Image changed without discussion. Old image on top, new image on bottom. While I definitely prefer the former between the two, I'm open to suggestions.

Be sure that, if it was a male Roman, he wouldn't be so gentle

The second image is impossible to read at that size.

[up] I can read it, but just barely...I prefer it to the anime pic, but that's a definite issue.

No, the other one.
The Change123 one doesn't illustrate the image. It's just a quotation. It's also not an example, since he's not hitting her because he's afraid of her, not because of a personal moral. It's written down in the example list as Playing with a Trope, which is correct, but it doesn't make for a good image.

The Astérix one shows something like half the trope, though the most important part. Is it famous enough to assume people know that Obelix will usually sock any (male) Romans into the air? Personally that's the first thing that comes to mind when I hear about the comic.

No, the other one.
Isn't he declaring his intent to hit her? Or does spanking not count?

[up] yeah, I couldn't really decide that myself.. I guess it doesn't really count compared to being beaten to a pulp? Anyway, it's in the examples list.. but then again, that doesn't mean much.

The Hulk pic (or whatever it is) is weak. It's just saying that they won't demolish her but still spank.

Asterix is readable enough for me, while the anime pic is just a quote.

There's also this strip from El Goonish Shive: [1]

[up]I think that suggestion illustrates a problem with illustrating the trope. It's about not doing something.

However, she does look sheepish enough that would inspire someone to smack her on the head, so it's not just a text example.

The Asterix one can be understood without needing to read the text: a female soldier orders two males to stop, and one of them passes by grabing her and taking her at his side, as if she was a rod or a sack. Meaning, he has the strength to pass, but without actually being violent with the female.
For the people!

So far I like the Asterix one best. I can tell what's going on in the pic without needing to read it, which in my mind, is the sign of a good pic. It's especially clear with the link to them beating up a horde of Romans, clearly they have no compunctions about hitting people in general, just women.

Can someone redo the small text in the Asterix pic so it's a little cleaner?

Works for me, too.
...if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you for it.
Egh, still not feeling that one. Any other options we can put on a crowner?

How about 3 panels from here?

[up]What about 1 and 3 from the one before?

That's a really good combination. (the 1&3 Duck suggested.)

Like this?

No, the other one.
[up]That actually looks better than I thought it would. You can even skip the text in the second panel, and it still makes sense, since you don't need to know why he's hitting him, just that he's okay with hitting a guy. Thus, it shows both willingness to hit a guy, and unwillingness to hit a girl.

The text is the second panel could be left out, but I think it would weaken it considerably.

Not saying it should. It's more an argument that it doesn't depend on a lot of text. It's a good image without that text, but a great one with.
